Prescription Policy:

After you fill your last refill, you or a pharmacist may request a new prescription. This triggers me to review your chart.  Are your labs and preventive services up to date? Is  your medication at the right dose? Is it still necessary for you to receive the medication? Are there interactions due to new medications? Have I received requested information from your specialist(s)? Often, I have questions to discuss with you before the new prescription can be sent.  Due to the extra care I devote before writing new prescriptions,  I require an office or E visit for all new prescriptions.  I am happy  to "stay ahead" of your prescription needs during all office visits and your regular pharmacist is authorized to give you a 3 day extension on regular prescriptions.
